Menéame Noticias was the first mobile app I built fully on React Native. It was built first for iOS and later on Android by my Mobile Team at APSL when the framework supported it. We were lucky to count with help from Ricardo Galli, who was one of our Principal Engineers at APSL at that time.

This app is fully open source and you can browse the source code here. You can download the app for iOS and Android.

I have worked for startups and big companies, helping them envision their mobile strategy. Currently, I serve as a Mobile Tech Lead at APSL.net. Learn more about me.
